WHAT IS CALL?
The Center for Adult Learning in Louisiana, or CALL, is a joint initiative between the Louisiana Board of Regents and the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) aimed at making it easier for Louisiana adults without a college degree to enroll at a Louisiana public college or university and earn a degree or other college credential.
CALL expands adult participation in postsecondary education by:
PROGRAMS AND SERVICES FOR ADULT LEARNERS
Today, CALL offers 29 online degree programs in accelerated or fast-track formats from 11 public college and university members statewide. The Center's mission was affirmed in its 2009 strategic plan "To provide a focused and centralized infrastructure to enhance adult learning opportunities for citizens of the state through expanded programs and services provided by public higher education institutions."CALL MEMBER INSTITUTIONS
CALL member institutions include:
CALL's marketing efforts are part of the Louisiana Board of Regents' "Education...Go for more!" campaign, being implemented in cooperation with the SREB's Adult Learning Campaign, supported by a grant from Lumina Foundation for Education , and the Go Alliance , a consortium of SREB member states chartered to cooperatively prepare for and launch media outreach campaigns that motivate all students to complete school at high levels of achievement. SREB established the Go Alliance to help states share expensive media materials and run more effective campaigns. The Go Alliance is supported by its member states and is sponsored by the College Board and ACT Inc.
CALL is supported by funding from the Louisiana Board of Regents. CERT, the Consortium for Education, Research and Technology of North Louisiana, served as an initial partner in an intermediary capacity and helped facilitate development of the initiative that became CALL.
